Thank you! It seemed SO bad and yet SO in his style…. I was thinking it might just have been an excellent parody. It is indeed horrific that it is an actual quote!!!!
Is that a real quote?!?! If so, I missed it.
Blah and uninteresting.
Argy… I especially liked your “(Oops…)” in the above. It had me chuckle! :)
(Apologies for the typos in the above…. they are abundant. It seems too daunting to try to re-edit them, so I am letting them stand. Keep in mind, I attribute them to having had neither coffee nor a pipe this morning. :) )
It is very pleasant seeing a more casual Bets & Gun moment.
What we have here is of course, two opposing comfort levels. Bets is VERY comfortable in having much of her life “social media-ized”. Gunther is not so comfortable having his life “social media-ized”.
But, as any successful couple understands…. this is an opportunity for COMPROMISE. And, at least in a rudimentary way I think compromise has been underway already. For me, the “lingerie” picture posted on social media of Gunther was the peak of the couple’s collective divergence from each other. In the intervening "social media captures* it appears that a) Gunther, although still somewhat uncomfortable, has been also a bit accepting of some of the social media aspects being in their relationship and b) Bets has been now only posting images that positively reflect on their relationship.
In my manner of thinking about Greg’s story arc…. I tend to envision that Gunther and Bets have had some rudimentary discussions about “social media” following the “lingerie” post and that has led both to start migrating to a more cohesive middle ground. Admittedly, it appears they are not yet in full “middleground agreement” …. but I feel confident that Greg will get them their over time.
I believe that there is a middle ground of comfort that they can both have in their relationship and that it can include some social media presence.
Mordy…. “quick” should not be on any couple’s aspirational list. :)
Poochie really very deeply and intimately knows Nancy and her motivations in life. She is a very astute scholar of the Nancy ethos. :)
Drawings…. usual standard of acceptablity.
Writings… as predicted, it appears we are going to jump ship to some other place very soon… with no real rhyme or reason to have been “here” except to have a few days worth of silly “multiple-Oop” jokes. Of those jokes, one was IMO passable, and the others inane.
As I have suggested this week… the continual lack of cohesion to plot….. actually more accurately… the continually false impression that there is or will be a plot….. truthfully makes this comic so, so very tiresome. And, as also stated before during this week…. it would not take a whole helluva lot of effort by the writer to actually have a bit of cohesion, and story development…. and with just that little smidgen of effort…. JAS could easily create an average comic that would not continually disappoint.
I am not asking for hard work here, and I am not urging JAS to strive for an Eisner Award anymore…. it is readily apparent that JAS really does not want to devote much if any energy to this comic. But, she really should be able to devote a tiny smidgen of effort that is needed to make an “average” comic.
